Neil Warnock and Adel Taarabt have won the Championship's manager and player of the month awards.

Queens Park Rangers are top of the Championship and are unbeaten so far this season, winning three and drawing one of their four matches.

Taarabt has scored twice this season and has also been appointed captain of the side.

The Moroccan moved from Tottenham in the summer after spending last season on loan at QPR.

Warnock beat Millwall's Kenny Jackett, Cardiff's Dave Jones and Ipswich's Roy Keane to the manager's award.

Taarabt clinched the player of the month award ahead of Leeds keeper Kasper Schmeichel, Cardiff's Jay Bothroyd and Millwall's Paul Robinson.
